BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Chaminda Vaas903413.77382100
0.2 to G Gambhir, bowled him! Vaas pitched the ball on a good length around off stump and angled it into the left-hander, Gambhir played all around the line of the ball and it went though the gap between his bat and pad to hit off stump. 0/1
Nuwan Kulasekara702323.28323010
7.5 to V Kohli, lbw! Kulasekara pitches the ball on a good length just outside off stump and nips it back into the right-hander, Kohli gets half a stride forward and tries to drive, the ball beats the inside edge of the bat and crashes into the back pad in front of off stump, that is plumb and Doctrove sends Kohli on his way. 23/2
11.5 to SK Raina, Raina's urge to drive on the up has terminated his stay. It was the full length delivery outside off stump and Raina drove and straight to the trap laid at short cover. India continue to wobble.. 36/3
Thilan Thushara601813.00241000
20.3 to RG Sharma, caught! India are unraveling quickly! Sharma stayed rooted to the crease and poked at a short of a length delivery outside off stump, he got a thick edge that flew at a comfortable pace at waist height to Jayawardene at first slip, catches don't come much easier than that. 75/5
Ajantha Mendis942132.33450110
19.4 to Yuvraj Singh, bowled him! Mendis bowls the quicker one, Yuvraj lunges forward in defence and plays away from his body, he gets an inside edge on to his stumps, what an eventful first over and Mendis has come back strongly after being hit for six. 73/4
27.2 to MS Dhoni, caught!! Dhoni moves back and tries to cut a ball that's much too close to off stump, it turned ever so slightly away from the right-hander as well, the outside edge flies quickly to Jayawardene who takes a sharp catch at first slip. 87/6
45.6 to MM Patel, bowled! Mendis bowls a wicket-to-wicket line and the ball keeps low as well, Munaf moves towards the leg side and tries to play on the off, he misses and the ball hits leg stump. 146/10
Muthiah Muralidaran1023733.70402110
28.3 to IK Pathan, lbw! Asoka de Silva took his time but finally raised the finger, Pathan lunged forward to defend but got hit on the pad in front of middle, the ball pitched in line as well, he was a long way forward and the only doubt was whether it would have missed off, whoops replays show an inside edge on to pad so Pathan was unlucky. 87/7
36.6 to Z Khan, caught in the deep! Zaheer's patience wears out and he tries to slog Murali over the midwicket boundary, he hasn't connected well enough and Thushara takes a few steps back at deep midwicket and holds a well-judged catch, he looks back to see if he's inside the boudnary and he is!. 107/8
42.1 to Harbhajan Singh, Harbhajan's walked, he moved back to cut the doosra from outside off stump, the ball hit the bottom edge of the bat and Kumar Sangakkara took a simple catch, Harbhajan didn't even wait for a decision. 117/9

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Munaf Patel903223.55374000
6.2 to ST Jayasuriya, caught! Jayasuriya takes two steps out of his crease and tries to hit Munaf over the leg side, the length is short and he is cramped for room by the line, the ball hits the top edge and goes high in the air towards mid-on where Irfan Pathan settles under the catch. 18/1
12.5 to KC Sangakkara, caught! Munaf pitches on a good length around middle and seams the ball away from the left-hander, Sangakkara closes the face and tries to play on the leg side, he gets a leading edge back to the bowler and Munaf takes a simple catch. 45/2
